Irene’s journey into using frequency and intention for healing began in 2003 when she became a Young Living Distributor.  In 2007 a health crisis brought her to Beyond Wellness as a client.  As her body continued to heal  she became interested in energy work and began studying at the Sacred  Journey
Institute.  She credits her ability to heal with Cranial Sacral  Therapy and Essential Oils. Irene offers a fusion of cranial sacral therapy and essential oils in her sessions. 

“Becoming a Lightwork is a dream come true for me.  I feel privileged to help facilitate the healing process for my  clients.  Cranial Sacral Therapy has opened up a new avenue for me to  be able to assist people.  I have always enjoyed teaching and  being able to witness the development of each
students gifts by assisting  classes at the Sacred Journey Institute is a very humbling  experience.”
